Forum: prelinger Subject: New re-scan posts -- Wow!

Wow! Just discovered the many re-scan uploads of Prelinger shorts from late last year. These are substantial upgrades that use the actual framerates and framing of the original films. They replace many over-cropped and lower quality transfers that used half-horizontal resolution and NTSC specs inappropriate for these films. Looks like Rick didn't give all the originals to the U.S. National Archives as these must have been scanned from original stock. Especially appreciate the Medicus 1939 NY World's Fair set that is now sharper, more colorful, and uncropped compared to the originals that were transferred to videotape and posted years ago.
Many thanks to Rick Prelinger and the team for taking the time to process and post these!
